My Approach

It’s common to feel overwhelmed, aimless, and stressed in today’s world. Many people experience stress, trauma, anxiety, and depression in their daily lives. Even the strongest people seek out help to get through it and live their best lives. Not surprisingly, after taking the first step of seeking out therapy, many people see their lives as healthier, happier, and overall improved. 

My approach to therapy is tailored specifically to you. You are the expert in yourself, so I strive to work collaboratively with you to help you through tough and unavoidable life situations. My goal is to find what works best for you. I aim to develop meaning and value in everyday experiences in order to live a more fulfilled life. By working together, we can use your strengths to achieve your goals and find relief in the busy, stressful, and at times, painful nature of everyday life. 

Treatment Approaches

I integrate theoretical approaches from several evidenced-based treatments to provide you individualized, strengths-based, and effective treatment. Although I utilize other approaches as well, the most common orientations and approaches include:

  • Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT)

  • Existential/Humanistic

  • Person-Centered

  • Trauma Informed Care

  • Motivational Interviewing

  • Behavioral Therapy
